Abstract
This paper describes the algorithms and procedures used for in-flight calibration of the nonscanning radiometers used in the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) instruments. The computation of the count conversion coefficients used in the basic ERBE radiometric equations is described, as well as the determination of the offsets and time-dependent coefficients used to account for the in-flight changes in the radiometers. The calibration results for more than 5 years of ERBE data are summarized for all nonscanning radiometers. Discontinuities in the observed data, and the effects of these discontinuities are discussed. Applications of ERBE type calibration algorithms to the EOS/CERES platforms are suggested.
